Description : OpenStack Workflow as a Service client
Mistral is a task management service. It is also known as Workflow as a
Service. Most business processes consist of multiple distinct interconnected
steps that need to be executed in a particular order in a distributed
environment. One can describe such process as a set of tasks and task
relations and upload such description to Mistral so that it takes care of
state management, correct execution order, task distribution and high
availability. Mistral also provides flexible task scheduling so that we can
run a process according to a specified schedule (i.e. every Sunday at 4.00pm)
instead of running it immediately. We call such set of tasks and dependencies
between them a workflow. Independent routes in a workflow (which, in fact, is
a graph) are called flows and Mistral can execute them in parallel.
Note: This is a new dependency of Murano, which graduated from incubation.
The project Mistral itself, is IMO not yet ready for an upload in Debian.
